Enjoy the Versatility of Bean Bags in Your Home

Bean bags are basically a shaped bag made of fabric that is filled with polystyrene or PVC pellets. They became popular as ‘mod’ furniture in the late 1960s and early 1970s, as an inexpensive alternative to couches and lounge chairs.

The early bean bags were very simple and not very imaginative compared to the ones that are available today. They were novelty items back then, designed for short-term use, with a limited range of fabrics and only a few basic shapes.

In the 1990s, the bean bag enjoyed a revival, and the range that is currently available is mind-boggling. Some companies exist that sell nothing but bean bags and their accessories. Now there are designs in different shapes and styles; a great variety of fabrics are used including vinyl, leather, cotton and polyester. They come in a huge range of colors and different sizes; there are fancy shapes like cars, animals and novelty shapes; there are bean bags for indoors, outdoors and even the pool. There are bean bags for one person, couches for two and even self-supporting models for extreme comfort.

You will find a wide range of prices when you shop for bean bags, from quite inexpensive to the top of the range luxury designs. Price is generally determined by the quality and type of the fabric, the quality of manufacture like the stitching and zippers and where it is made. Look for brands that offer a guarantee, as this is a good guide as to the quality of the product.

A good bean bag should support your head and neck while molding to your body at the same time. You really need to try the bean bags before you decide which one to buy. Different grades of ‘beans’ are available, so ask for advice when you are shopping. Your bean bag will still need topping up with fresh ‘beans’ after some time, as the polystyrene compresses with use.

There are some other points to consider when purchasing bean bags. Stories are common of kids opening the zip on a bean bag and emptying the contents all over the living room floor, so look for designs that have child-proof zips (you will need to use a paper clip to open them). Bean bags that have an internal liner are another good idea; this makes washing the cover so simple as you just remove it without creating any mess.

To get the best service from bean bags, it is important to follow some basic care guidelines. Avoid rough treatment like jumping into the bean bag, as this can damage the seams and the zip. Most people have heard stories of exploding bean bags when the kids decide to play ‘dive bombing’. It is also a good idea to maintain the correct level of filling in your bean bags, to ensure maximum comfort and wear.

Clean the fabric of the bag according to the directions on the label, or follow general cleaning guidelines suitable for the type of fabric used. Regular vacuuming, using a low suction is recommended as well as spot cleaning any stains and spills. Keep bean bags away from direct sunlight, heaters and air-conditioning ducts.

Investigate modern bean bags and consider how versatile they can be in your home. Use them as regular furniture, or have a few on hand for when extra guests pop round.

Dupli-color Vinyl Dye Xbox Mod?

I want to make my xbox 360 controller black.. do i need to have a clear coat at the end? since this is a dye, not a paint? i dont care if its shiny, i care if its durable, and wont rub/chip off when your playing….

Thanks in advance!

Well, because its a dye, I would guess you wouldnt need a clear coat but it well probably help to have one. Even though its a dye, it probably wont penetrate too deep into the controller so a clearcoat would help for scratches, controller drops on concete (that happened to me before….not good), and everyday wear and tear.
